“We lurk!”

The Fugitive Banner ©JBoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Jones and Burr sauntered into the bank and waited patiently for the two citizens already there to complete their business.

“Okay, Cyrus, I’ll see you next month on payday.”

“Yah-sure, Ralph. Give the missus my best,” Ambrose the teller replied.

After Ralph left the bank, Ambrose turned to Jones and Burr, “May I help you?”

“Yes,” Wilson Jones replied, “I’d like to make a withdrawal.”

“Very well, sir,” Ambrose replied, “Your name?”

James drew his revolver, “It’s Colt, Samuel Colt, and I’d like withdraw all the money you have in this bank—please.”

“I beg your pardon—all the money?”

“Yes, a home-improvement loan,” Jones replied, “If you wish to survive our visit.”

Ghost-critter Cleo, who had been observing the transaction, immediately transported herself to the Posse HQ in Danger Bay, “Jones is in Grand Marais—robbing the bank.”

“Let’s ride,” Debra exclaimed.

“Perhaps not,” Chris replied, “This may be a misdirection ploy by Jones.”

Season 17—Adventure 7—The Fugitive—Episode 4—Scene 1… Inside the Posse HQ in Danger Bay… “So—we lurk here?” Joey asked.

“We don’t ‘lurk,’ we wait, Joey,” Boomer retorted.

“We lurk!”

“No—We wait”

“Lurk!”

“Wait!”

“Lurk!”

“Wait!”

“Knock it off!” Linda exclaimed, “Honestly, you sound so JUNIOR HIGH!”

Success!” both Boomer & Joey exclaimed.

“It would be best if we let them come to us,” Chris observed, “I know—that doesn’t sound like me—but I believe we’re better off letting them come to us—besides we’ve infiltrated their gang.”

“Very-well,” Captain Boomer replied, “Come-up with a plan.”

“Easy enough,” She replied, “We just hang-out in town—like we generally do when not on an assignment.”

Episode 4—Scene 2… The Posse was “Hanging-Out” in Danger Bay… For all the good that did—Jones and Company did not arrive as expected, “Obviously, ‘lurking’ is not working all that well for us.”

“What was your first clue, Joey?” Linda asked—grinning.

“HA!”

Episode 4—Scene 3… Outside the Town Hall & All Faith’s Church in Danger Bay… The Posse waited, “Well—THIS is FUN!”

The Posse waited outside the Town Hall & All Faiths Church ©JBoardman“Well—THIS is FUN!”

“You have a strange sense of what constitutes ‘fun,’ Joey,” Boomer cracked-wise.

“Alright, you two,” Chris Earp laughed, “Where are the ghost-critters and Flutters?”

“That’s a good question,” Debra agreed, “Any idea Cleo?”

“Not since they left Grand Marais,” she replied, “I suspect Juco interfered with me.”

“Flutters—where are you?” Mac thundered.

Flutters didn’t reply.

      Strawberry Roan by Marty Robbins

      I was hangin’ ’round town, just spendin’ my time
      Out of a job, not earnin’ a dime
      A feller steps up and he said, “I suppose
      You’re a bronc fighter from looks of your clothes.”
      “You figures me right, I’m a good one.” I claim
      “Do you happen to have any bad ones to tame?”
      Said “He’s got one, a bad one to buck
      At throwin’ good riders, he’s had lots of luck.”
